Two to hospital after motorway collision

Wednesday 27th January 2016 – 2pm – Jamie Arrowsmith.

A woman and child have been treated at the scene of a three-vehicle RTC on the M6 this afternoon and subsequently taken to hospital.

The incident, which involved two cars and a lorry, took place near to junction three on the northbound side of the carriageway.

West Midlands Ambulance Service was called just after 12pm and sent two ambulances and a paramedic area support officer to the scene.

A West Midlands Ambulance Service spokesman said: “On arrival, crews were told that a car and a lorry had been involved in a collision with the third car becoming involved after hitting some debris that had been left on the road as a result of the initial incident.

“There were two patients, a woman in her 30s and a female toddler.

“The woman was treated for injuries to her side and back whilst the girl had suffered cuts.

“Thankfully, the girl was properly strapped into the vehicle with the appropriate car seat. A decision which has almost certainly helped to limit the injuries she has suffered in the incident.

“They were both taken to University Hospital Coventry and Warwickshire for further assessment.

“A woman from the second car and the lorry driver, a man, were both assessed and discharged at the scene.”
